Born in Schenectady, New York raised in Albany, New York - Nico Brooks developed a love for music at a very young age. He loves old music that have came from bands & other artist known as the Commodores, earth wind & fire, the gap band, Marvin Gaye, Natalie Cole and others. That inspiration of music came from his parents who are a little older, some people would say that Nico Brooks is an old soul. He credits his sister for the start of my music career she introduced me to one of the most beautiful, intricate & unique voice of Aaliyah. Aaliyah is one of his biggest musical influences along with Eminem, Biggie, Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, Juelz Santana, TI, French & Future. Currently Nico Brooks is working on a project right now more likely my tape "Abnormal" will be dropping on Spinrilla & DatPiff January 24, 2016.
